Smart Grid: Innovations to ensure reliability of the U.S. power supply

Before electricity arrives at our homes or businesses, it must first be generated at a remote location and transmitted over a power grid. While the current system reliably supplies us with power each day, there remains room for improvement. That’s where the Texas A&M Smart Grid Center comes into play.

The Texas A&M Smart Grid Center brings together teams of faculty and student researchers, as well as industry professionals, to modernize current infrastructure, behavior, business models, and public policies. Their goal is to safeguard the United States against energy disasters, such as the 2003 Northeast Blackout. By creating innovative energy solutions today, the Center is working to meet the needs of future generations.
